ABOUT ASNT GOLDEN GATE
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR
Hello Section members and friends! We’re very excited about this year’s program, and we welcome everyone to be an active participant in our community. Our meetings always have an interesting mix of folks from diverse backgrounds and talents and are great places to network and meet other people in the NDT community. We have a great selection of speakers from all over the country coming to our meetings this year. Please look at the Calendar page and sign up for the events!
I am proud and excited to be serving as the new Section Chair. I thank the board for electing me to this position and would like to ask everyone to join hands to congratulate Joe Kraft for serving as the Section Chair for the last two years. As the chair, my goal will be to increase collaboration with the research community, and work towards outreach services to benefit the larger community.
The past year has been one of the toughest years for all of us and I would like to congratulate everyone for being strong throughout and hoping that new times bring us happiness and positivity. Thank you to the entire Section for the hard work and tremendous support. Due to current COVID restrictions, we have started this season with virtual meetings (Zoom). We intend to transition towards a hybrid format with options for in-person and virtual meetings in the near future. Please stay tuned for more updates.
Please join the section at our monthly meetings to know more about NDT technologies. You can send me a message if you have any questions, comments, ideas, or concerns. You can also find the list of our elected officers in the ‘Officers & Directors’ page and feel free to contact them as well. I look forward to working with all of you this year!
